    First please get Spybot S&D to clear out most of the spyware.

    Short tutorial and download link here:
    http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/

    Fix everything SpybotSD labels in red.

    Then after reboot:
    Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

    Rescan and put a check next to each of these then close all browser windows and click "fix checked"

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [xpsystem] C:\WIN95\SYSTEM\SERVICES\SERVICES.EXE


    Then reboot into safe mode and delete :
    C:\WIN95\SYSTEM\SERVICES\SERVICES.EXE

    Reboot and produce a fresh log.
